Weekend is going to the dogs!

We pulled in for our first weekend at the campground where we will be spending most of our summer. I noticed when we pulled in that there were a lot of dogs in the campground.. Which is great as we are dog lovers and travel with two of our own.
Well this morning I was woken up really early with barking coming from two doors down... And it has been basically non stop for hours now. It seems to be one particular family..and the barking is made worse by the people coming out and screaming at the dogs to "shut up" also at the top of their voices... Which I think their dogs are interpreting as "the humans are now barking too.. We better bark louder".
Has anyone had any experience in addressing inconsiderate campers? I don't even know what to say.. If my dogs were acting that way I would take them for a long run to tire them out and then put them to bed... But I do sympathise to a degree, so i dont want to come across as critical, but they are disrupting the weekends of about 100 other family's ....
Should I complain to the office and let them deal with it.. Or will that just make it worse?

I would let the CG office deal with it. If you meet some of the neighbors having issue with the barking dogs have them report it to the office as well...., may help in getting the office to truly do something about it.

I would avoid approaching the "barkers", unless the office ignores your complaint on the matter.

The inconsiderate people with the constantly barking dogs probably hear it 24/7 at their homes and do not even notice them at the campgrounds. I like dogs and own one, but some less responsible owners think their dog has more rights than the humans around them and will defend their dogs to the death. This is a problem that management should make an attempt to stop. I can't tell you to go to a "No Pets" campground because you have two yourself. Maybe, just maybe you will get lucky and the owner of the barking dogs the management, or you end up confronting will be decent and try to work out a solution to this problem. Good luck.

Go to the host or if you are in a State or Corps cg, tell an officer.

That would get old quick. I would report also to the CG host and let them deal with confronting the dog owners, who will likely be very defensive and ticked that someone ratted them out. Since you're "two doors down," they'll most likely think it's the camper right next to them!

More than likely, the campground has a rule about barking dogs. I would bring this to their attention and let them deal with it.

We are at a seasonal and if you have barking dogs, it is a 2 strike policy. After the 2nd strike you are told to leave the dogs at home. Most folks are really great about the whole thing.

I love dogs, but can't stand constantly barking dogs (my neighbor has one). I agree with everyone else, let the cg deal with the issue.

Yup, CG host/manager is responsible. Don't know the particulars of your CG but the ones we have stayed at have noise/pet rules. It's a contract.

Last year I was at a campground where the neighbor left his two dogs in the hot trailer all day. The barking drove us crazy but I was amazed someone would leave their dogs in a hot trailer all day. Yes I let them have it when they showed up and they were most apologetic but you can't unring the bell. It was the same campground where we had a visit from a bear. This was partially due to another dog owner who left his dog food out after being told not to by the camp hosts. Luckily the bear ate only the dog food.
